The glass ceiling is broken…and the next ceiling, and the next! Let there be haste for my promotion! Let me knock this new level out of the park with boldness and confidence.

A Prayer To Be A Light To Others While I'm At Work Lord, I pray that I can show Jesus at work. Help me shine my light —I pray it shines bright. Help me identify those for whom to pray and minister to at work. Whether in a cubicle, at lunch, or during my personal time, lead and guide my voice to the person who needs you. I pray for your wisdom and guidance on what to say to them. I ask that they will be healed. I pray that my “Hello” or “How are you?” or any conversation means something to others. Let my words help to heal them in ways that are permanent. May they heal any broken piece inside of them. I pray I not only shine my light but also inspire others to do the same. For your glory, I thank you in Jesus’ name. Amen.
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
